Saturday March 24 2018: Save the Date! We will be holding a Come & Sing Day on Mendelssohn's Elijah, the highly dramatic oratorio which was the focus of the last two years of the composer's life and which was given its premiere in 1846. The event will take place on Saturday March 24 2018 at St. Barnabas Church, Dulwich. Details will be available nearer the time. All are very welcome!Dulwich Choral Society is a thriving, friendly, auditioned choir that performs at least three concerts a year, including two with professional orchestras and top-class soloists. DCS was founded in 1944 and, since 2006, Aidan Oliver, one of the UK's leading choral conductors, has been Musical Director. As well as giving concerts in the Dulwich area, the choir has performed more widely in central London and abroad. Since 1998 the choir has undertaken tours to Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Germany and Estonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina; in 2014 the choir continued this tradition with a four day visit to Portugal, performing in Sintra and Lisbon. Closer to home the choir performs in several of the beautiful churches in and around Dulwich, and enjoys a strong local following. If you would like to support the choir, you can find details of our Friends and Patrons scheme here.
